Lollapalooza 2021 Lineup: Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler the Creator, Miley Cyrus to Headline

Lollapalooza released its lineup Wednesday for the 2021 festival in Chicago’s Grant Park this summer, with the Foo Fighters, Post Malone, Tyler the Creator and Miley Cyrus slated to headline.

Other artists scheduled to perform include DaBaby, Marshmello, Illenium, Journey, Megan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch.

Here’s a look at the full lineup:

Chicago’s largest music festival will be held at full capacity from July 29 to August 1, organizers announced Tuesday.

Tickets for the four-day festival will go on sale at 12 p.m. CT Wednesday, at which point only the four-day tickets for general admission, GA+, VIP, Platinum and hotel packages will be available. Organizers said single-day tickets will be available at a later date.

Organizers said in announcing the festival’s return that a full COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results within 24 hours before attending the festival will be required for admission, in accordance with current public health guidance.

Details on the festival entry process will be available in early July, officials said.

The festival was postponed indefinitely last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, a decision Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot called “difficult.”

“Here in Chicago, the word ‘Lollapalooza’ has always been synonymous with summer, great music and four days of unforgettable fun – which made last year’s decision to postpone it all the more difficult,” Lightfoot said in a statement Tuesday.

“Now, less than a year later and armed with a vaccine that is safe, effective and widely available, we are able to bring back one of our city’s most iconic summer music festivals,” Lightfoot continued. “I want to thank the Lollapalooza team for working closely with the City to create a reopening strategy that prioritizes safety and can’t wait to see festivalgoers return to Grant Park this summer.”

Chicago is currently in the Bridge Phase of its reopening plan, with increased capacity limits and other changes ahead of a full reopening in Phase 5.

Lightfoot has previously said the city’s goal is a full reopening with no capacity limits by the Fourth of July and has long hinted that this summer would look more like the summer of 2019 than of 2020 in terms of large-scale events like Lollapalooza and other festivals.
